treeWe are human only in form (in body). In essence, we are neural, regardless of the (bodily) form we are. We were neural when we were pre-human in form (when we were apes, when we were tree-dwelling, insect-eating, squirel-like creatures.) We have been neural (in essence) much longer than we have been human (in form). Neural is human. Whatever is neural is human. Wherever you find a neuron, there, as a species, you are (in essence, not in form).  We are used to noticing the form-figure of who we aren’t. We need to learn to notice the essence-ground of who we are.  Neural Tribe (NT) perspective is a new Gestalt about who we are and who we aren’t.
